Replay Expo 2012 Set To Take Place In Manchester This October

Replay-Expo-2012-Set-To-Take-Place-In-Manchester-This-OctoberAlthough Blackpool was quickly becoming the retro gaming centre of the UK, the team behind Replay Expo have announced that their annual event is set to migrate elsewhere. According to their Twitter feed, Replay Expo is due to take place in mid-October, in Manchester, and under an all new name.

Whilst no venue or official name for the event has been made public, Replay Events have requested that retro gamers keep the weekend starting on the 13th October vacant for the annual event. If the last few years have been anything to go by, we too would suggest you make a note in your calendars and prepare for a weekend of pixely-goodness!

Hopefully RetroCollect will be hosting many more competitions this year at Replay Expo, after seeing all our Golden Joypad prizes being won by talented retro gamers around the country. If you missed out on Replay Expo 2011 for whatever reason, be sure to catch up on everything that happened with our show report.

@ReplayEvents FollowManchester here we come! New venue, new dates and even a new name for @ReplayExpo! More to follow! P.S. 13/14 Oct 2012 <--- save the dates!!

Replay Events have also set up a newsletter subscription, titled Replay Gamer, for anyone wanting to keep up to date with any annoucements regarding the event.
